In 1986, shipwrights John Thomas and his partner, Joe Bakketun, started their boat repair business in the Fremont area of Seattle. After 5 years there, they moved their shop to its present location on Salmon Bay, just east of Fisherman's Terminal. In 2013, Joe retired.

The business is currently owned and operated by John Thomas, under the name Thomas Boat Repair. We specialize in every aspect of boat repairs, ranging from large structural repairs, to fine joinery. The boats we most commonly work on are commercial fishing boats, tugs, power boats, sail boats and yachts of all sizes.
